Paul collected us from Colchester station with a bike carrier on the back of his car, so he could take us, with 1 bike, to the start. So close to London you wouldn't expect such stunning unspoiled typically English countryside; we passed many a view we recognised from Constable paintings. The Estuaries of the rivers Stour and Orwell were also... More

Excellent organisation. Good routes organised to our specifications. Service with a smile. Couldn't have been better. (Well maybe he could have organised wall to wall sunshine)

Paul was very helpful in putting together a splendid route for us in Suffolk & Essex. The villages were all lovely and we stopped at some very picturesque National Trust spots. It was an easy and enjoyable day. Definitely recommend Cool Pedals and hope to return again for more.

I have wanted to do some "proper cycling" for a few years & I was recommended Cool Pedals as they are nearby to where I live & they know what they are doing. I also find the area has unequalled beauty & I wanted to experience it on bike for a change. I cant fault Cool Pedals at all. Equipment... More

Absolutely amazing scenery and our refreshment stops were fantastic. Accommodation at Dedham Hall and Poplars Farmhouse were also terrific.

Despite the freezing cold weather that we endured, this trip of Paul's was a great success. Our 6 day tour took us round some beautiful villages, countryside and coast - the route was very well thought through. Took our own bikes, but all the baggage was moved on for us and we stayed in superb bed and breakfasts. We'll definitely... More

We were glad that we found Paul Armstrong of Coolpedals for our first cycling holiday abroad. Corresponding with him over the Internet to liaise for the logistics of the trip was easy and he gave us very good hotel accommodations with wifi. The routes that he planned catered to what we wanted and we were very pleased with the logistics... More

Two friends and I have just come back from a 2 night Constable tour with Cool Pedals and it was brilliant. Turning up and being greeted by Paul, we were set up with excellent bikes with 27 gears, a GPS with our routes programmed in, and good old fashioned paper maps too, so it was difficult to get lost.

Our family of four -- two adults and two girls aged 12 and 15 -- took a 3-day beginner level Coolpedals cycling holiday as part of a 3 week trip to the UK and we really enjoyed it. We found it an excellent antidote to the frantic pace and noise of sightseeing in London. We were lucky to enjoy cool... More
